The Perfect Getaway For Your Summer Vacation Or Off-season Retreat
This will be my fourth year as owner of a wonderful guest house on Oak Island, North Carolina. Growing up near the ocean with the sounds of the sea birds, the roar of the waves crashing on the beaches, and the clear night sky filled with so many stars, I consider myself fortunate to be able to enjoy them all again.
Gerry purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Gerry chose Long Beach
If you long for the ocean that was once a part of your life as it has been for us, I invite you to Oak Island, a world away from the noise and rush of the "city-life" and to take this opportunity to re-acquaint yourself with the "sounds of the sea".

Peaceful on Oak Island
It's a pleasure to cook in the kitchen with such a beautiful view! You're only 5 minutes from the beach, but the peace and quiet of the marsh is a world away. The property has everything you need for a great vacation. We totally enjoyed our week!
Perfect Guest House
The property was clean, nicely decorated, well equipped and very comfortable. We loved sitting out on the deck in the evening and communing with nature.

Beautiful property and wonderful amenities. Very private yet close to beach. Loved the marsh view. Very relaxing!
These are the kind of comments that I like to receive from guests, confirming how special the guest house and location are. Come stay and see for yourself.
Wish Upon a Starfish is a wonderful property. This was our second stay there and I am already looking forward to a third. The location, decor, and amenities are top notch. Gerry is a wonderful host.
It's always nice to see repeat guests. It's a sure sign the guesthouse is just right for a couple who wants to escape for some quiet time.
The perfect get-away
If you're looking for a place off the beaten path and away from it all, this is the place. Everything was very clean with pretty decor. More amenities than we expected. We're looking forward to visiting again.
So pleased to know when guests have enjoyed a relaxing, quiet few days and are looking forward to a return visit.
The best ever
Loved everything about it. It's beautiful clean and so close to the beach
We strive to make our guesthouse a place our guests will remember. Being close to the beach only makes your stay something special.
Oak Island is known for its un-crowded beaches and opportunities to fish, sail, surf, bird watch and kayak. Kayaking and bicycling are regular activities for visitors and residents alike. Choose from an ocean pier (a 5-minute walk from the guesthouse) from which to fish or take a boat charter from Blue Water Point Marina. The climb up the Oak Island Lighthouse is a must see - reserve your free tour 2 weeks in advance.
